Portrait photo of Nicholas Gonzales, a VAST photographer creating extremely high resolution photographs

Nicholas Gonzales

San Francisco, CA

Nick was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area. Though he grew up in the South Bay, he has lived in San Francisco since 2007.

Nick first fell in love with a camera during a high school photography class. While using an old Pentax 35mm film SLR, he became familiar with all of the functions of the camera and also the process of developing film by hand and creating prints in a darkroom. Photography has been his favorite hobby ever since.

Having lived in San Francisco for the last 15 years, it is easy to understand how cityscapes became his favorite style of photography. Finding a subject is never difficult with the City's beautiful bridges, skyline, and famous landmarks. The difficulty comes in deciding which to shoot on any particular day.
